    I Carry A Gun Because A Cop Is Too Heavy

    So Im sure we've all heard the famous quote about carrying a gun because a cop is too heavy. Well, I can certainly see why in most cases it would be more practical to carry a gun and people certainly should be able to carry guns for personal protection but when it comes to carrying a cop for personal protection, if you can afford it and if you want to go with that option you can hire bodyguards to be with you when you go out in public, some of which I believe are former and current police officers.

    The politicians' fever dream.
    You can't truly call yourself "peaceful" unless you are capable of great violence. If you're not capable of great violence, you're not peaceful, you're harmless.

    No, it's not. They are not motivated by those things because they are not the direct exercise of power. And, if on a secluded island who would recognize them and be awed by their magnificence?

    I carry a gun because even if a could afford a cop to follow me around:
    • I would prefer the defensive shooter is proficient with firearms. The term "cop" incorrectly presupposes that.
    • No offense, but who wants to hang around with a strange cop all day long? I'd have to drive the speed limit everywhere I go!
    • No one will defend me and mine as well as I will.
    • I can't be stopping for donuts and coffee every couple of hours!

    The true test of a politician's conviction is make them live by the laws they inflict on the populous. For example, politicians that choose to disarm the public should not receive publicly-funded security services. Politicians should have to receive the same healthcare benefits that we receive.

    The key is to be a rich enough old guy that when you are looking at those young women, they are looking back, and will come over and help you drink that expensive booze. Now that is rich!

    Why do I carry a gun? Because I can't carry enough doughnuts for everybody!

    Why do cops love doughnuts? Who cares. I'm too busy scarfin' 'em down.

    Although I’d pick a cop like this one, and strange wouldn’t matter to me.....
